Echidna takes a surprise dip at Collins beach!              By Kate T ·  · From Pic of the Week

On Saturday, A group of us were on the beautiful, secluded, Collins flat beach in Manly celebrating a friends birthday when out of the bush came this little guy on a mission!
Up over the sand he went and we were wondering where he was headed .....to our surprise he just kept on walking on into the sea and a small group of us got to witness this amazing creature swim all the way over to the other side where he climbed up over the rocks and continued his mission - amazing! Who knew echidnas could swim?!
We feel extremely blessed to have witnessed what I think is very rare - this is the last thing I thought an echidna would do! Best day ever!  Published 22 Nov 2016.  Manly NSW 2095

A Dose of Cuteness to Brighten Your Day

Contrary to what many people believe, the Tawny Frogmouth isn't actually an owl; rather it belongs to the nightjar family of nocturnal birds. Unlike Owls that catch pretty in their powerful talons, these guys use their large mouths to catch insects in flight. In urban areas, this can have unfortunate consequences, when insects (and therefore the Tawny Frogmouths that prey on them) are attracted to sources of light such as streetlights or car headlights. Published 25 Nov 2016.  Glen Eden QLD 4680
